As we shared with you via email yesterday, Fr. Jim was in a serious accident on Thursday. We are so thankful that he OK and is expected to make a full recovery, but he is facing multiple surgeries and will be out of commission for quite some time. Fr. Jim is always our steadfast leader and partner in prayer, and he is comforted knowing that we are praying for him now.
So many of you have reached out to ask what you can do for Fr. Jim at this time. Please know that he is in great hands and receiving the best possible care as he recovers. Your continued prayers for his complete and speedy recovery and return to us are the best way to support him at the current moment. We will, of course, provide regular updates to you as Fr. Jim shares them with us, and he will let us know how best to support him in the days and weeks ahead. Cards and notes can be sent to Fr. Jim at the rectory address (9 Glen Road, Wellesley, MA 02481).
We are currently working diligently to arrange Mass coverage for the coming weeks. Our Summer Weekend Mass Schedule is in effect and we expect that it will remain unchanged. If we are unable to secure a celebrant for a Weekday Mass, a Liturgy of the Word with Distribution of Holy Communion will take place. Whenever possible, we will update the calendar on the website to let you know in advance, but please understand that during this time there are likely to be last minute changes. (A list of area parishes and their weekday Mass schedules can be found here on our website.)
